ATLANTA-Fort Mitchell, KY-based Columbia Sussex Corp. breaks ground for a 14-story, 409-room, four-star Marriott hotel in the Grande Dunes luxury community under development in Myrtle Beach, SC by locally based Burroughs & Chapin Co.

Columbia Sussex purchased 10 acres of oceanfront property for the hotel from Burroughs & Chapin for an undisclosed amount.

Construction cost for the hotel is $50 million or about $122,249 per room, Mike Hanahs, project manager for Columbia Sussex, tells GlobeSt.com.

The hotel is scheduled to open in January 2004. It will have indoor and outdoor spas, a 110-foot water slide and 30,000 sf of meeting space.

Columbia currently owns and manages 55 hotels with a total 15,682 rooms. This will be its first hotel venture in South Carolina.

The 2,200-acre Grande Dunes development has a marina, 18-hole golf course, and 25,000-sf Ocean Club. In addition to single-family homes selling for between $350,000 and $4 million, it will contain the Villa Del Mar multifamily condos.

A timeshare property is planned adjacent the Marriott Hotel. Complete build-out of Grande Dunes is expected to take between 20 and 25 years.
